Hello, it could be an infection or allergy to the earring metal. Sometimes an ear piercing can result in keloidal scar. Please consult a dermatologist for treatment and to prevent any further complication. Remove the earring if possible and avoid scratching the area. Meanwhile apply antibiotic fusiwal cream twice daily but it may not be sufficient. Warm regards, Dr Pinanky Jadhav, Eternis Skin & Hair Clinic, Pune
